Newfie vs Newfoundlander
I don’t get that, I have met folks who find it offensive, but I think that’s because the true Newfie spirit is being diluted from mainland exposure.
I grew up in southern rural NJ where the appellation was “Piney”, someone from the Pine barrens, as opposed to a “Sand Flea”, someone from the barrier island, although “piney” is better known. I’ve taken Piney and Newfie both as marks of heritage and pride.
In general its funny
how folks have become so sensitive and politically correct when I know others who spit after saying either Democrat or Republican.
Anyway, it’s my sense that it is a few vocal folks who take offense too gladly who have made others over sensitive.
Sticks and stones and all that.
Here’s one for ya bey,
How do you tell the Newfoundlander’s in heaven?
They are the ones who want to go home.
